Your kidney is an amazing organ and extremely important to your health. Kidneys filter out the impurities from our bloodstream as well as the waste products from our urine.
Kidney stones form when your urine contains a lot of crystal forming substances like calcium, oxalate and uric acid. When I say a lot, I mean more than your urine can dilute. When your urine becomes too concentrated, minerals and acid salts begin to stick together or crystallize together and form stones.
Few Important Ways To Get Rid Of Kidney Stones Naturally
Drink A Lot Of Water
You need to drink enough fluid or water to excrete more than 3 liters of urine each day. You even need to be drinking through the night some. Your urine needs to be clear.
Avoid Drinking Sodas & Sugary Fruit Juice
Soft drinks that are acidified with phosphoric acid will acidify your urine and lead to stone formation and fructose increases excretion of calcium, oxalate and uric acid which can contribute to stone formation.

While we can do a lot to improve the homeostasis or balance in our body physically it is critically important to clear the emotional conflicts that are associated with illness so that the body can heal naturally and fully. The body mirrors the emotions and it is imperative to take a look at what the body is telling us about ourselves. If we try to stop the symptoms without getting to the source of our issues then we do not do ourselves any favors. Below is what I think is the most important thing that can be done to naturally get rid of kidney stones and prevent them from returning.
Clear The Emotional Connection
Kidney stones are associated with a conflict of inability to mark or organize your territory and set your boundaries as well as worrying if you are able to survive your particular circumstance. This can show up in many ways in our life such as a child coming back home to live with a parent and bringing a certain chaos OR a wife of a Marine who finds that she has to move her home each year and can’t seem to get settled.
Maybe you are in conflict about staying where you are living and would like to leave but your spouse disagrees. Maybe you are in a relationship with your partner that is abusive and you can’t find your way out. Maybe you are working in an environment with a pushy, nosy co-worker who is intrusive. This can show up in a number of ways and you have to search your heart to see your particular issue related to territory. You also have to take steps to resolve the problem.
Remember, without clearing the emotional conflict it is difficult to clear the physical illness. You have to take a holistic approach to healing with everything your body presents. Also, remember that it is important to work closely with your personal physician regarding any medications you may be taking that could be contributing to kidney stone formation or that may interact with any herbals or cleanses you choose to use to help clear them.
